Suspected skeletal remains have been found in a burnt out vehicle in Guernsey, police have confirmed.

The vehicle was discovered on Monday morning in a secluded area near Petit Bot.

Following a detailed forensic examination of the car, specialist officers found what they believe at this stage to be parts of skeletal remains in the driver’s seat.

Guernsey Police have said: "This is as yet unconfirmed and further forensic tests are being carried out".

The owner of the vehicle is not yet known.

Police also received a report of a missing 33-year-old man earlier this week.

Mikus Alps (seen pictured below) was last seen at a residential address in St Saviour’s.

Mr Alps, who is from Latvia but a resident in Guernsey, is described as being around 5’9” tall with fair skin, blue eyes, short brown hair and a short beard. He also has distinctive tattoos on his arms and back.

Police are awaiting forensic tests to confirm whether or not the bones are from human skeletal parts.

In a statement they said: "We are at this stage keeping an open mind about the potential direction of the investigation".

Anyone with any information should contact Guernsey Police.
